Overview

Hi All and welcome to my diary for my Black Cherry Punch.

I will be growing 1 plant and as above the strain I am growing for this diary is the Black Cherry Punch from

8899A14B F423 4613 AB0A 655C06DE7BE7
2340C5C0 E749 4359 A773 05E8677DD65E

ย 

Medium

Same as my last grow I will be using the House & Garden Bat Mix Special soil.

image

Size of Grow Area and number of plants

I will be growing this plant along with one other inside a Green Box 0.6m x 1.2m x 1.5m Tent (2' x 4' x 5')

image

Lighting

I will be growing this plant under the Mars SP250 LED light.

image

Extraction

I will be using a standard 4" inline fan attached to a 4" Carbon Filter venting outside the tent through ducting. I will also be running a small length of ducting into the bottom half of my tent to act as a passive intake.

Pot Sizes

For this grow I will be using plastic pots again but increasing to 5 gallon size.

Nutrients

The nutrient range I will be using for this grow will again be the GHE Triple Pack Flora/Gro/Bloom

image

In addition I will also be using Botanicare Cal-Mag Plus

image

Finally I also will be using GrowthCare pH Up/Down

image

Other Equipment

For balancing and measuring Feeds I will use the Kettotek pH pen and PPM Meter

image

Plan for the grow

Plan for this grow is pretty much the same as my last one. I will be starting seedlings off in starter pots before transplanting to their final pots after a couple of weeks. Once the plant has reached 5 nodes I will top it above the 3rd node. Once plant has recovered from this I will then start with LST but will look to do this much harder this time to try and maximise potential bud sites. After the plant has been flipped and finished its stretch I will then lollipop the plant but again will do this much harder this time.

Im running this diary along side my Grow Off Diary however will still endeavour to keep this one as updated and thorough as time allows.

Happy growing everyone Thumbs Up ย

Germination

This morning I dropped 2 seeds into water and am leaving them to soak in the dark for 24 hours before transferring to a paper towel tomorrow.

@redeyejedi do you pH your water before soaking them seeds? Do you add anything to the soaking water?

@galandil no mate thats just plain tap water, nothing added. Ive read that you can add a drop of Hydrogen Peroxide and it will help soften the shell slightly but I did it this way last time and it worked fine so just sticking to that.

We Have Life!

So today officially became day 1 for the Black Cherry Punch as when I checked her this morning I was greeted to this beautiful sight

4BED02C6 AA9F 4B7F 9ED6 965AC14318C3

Literally just using a pipette to give her small amounts of tap water at the moment so as to let her breathe. Shes also under plastic cup which im spraying with water a few times a day to keep humidity up. Temp is a nice and toasty 24C so she should be nice and happy in there whilst she settles into her home for the next few weeks Thumbs Up ย

Day 10 Updateย 

Evening all, hope youve all had a good week Smile ย 

So I havent updated on the Black Cherry Punch in a while so thought id post a quick picture of her.

F56833B8 FABF 4230 9017 2498FB146BFD

So shes grown a bit over the last week or so, shes taking on alot more water now aswell. Got her under a fan to start to strengthen her stem up, although only a very very slight breeze at this stage.

Tomorrow im going to my local Hydroponic shop to get a fan speed controller. Got a new fan and its really good but even on the lowest setting its too powerful lol and is sucking the vapour straight from the humidifier and out the tent, so this should mean i'll be able to turn the speed down and also the volume which is another bonus.ย 

Obviously still just on tap water at this stage, wont start adding nutes until a week or 2 after transplant.

Humidity is set for 70% but is more likely 50% until I get my air exchange reduced tomorrowย 

Temp is around 26Cย 

Thats about it for today. Peace out and happy growing Thumbs Up ย

Day 17 Update - Pre Transplant

Evening Percy growers, hope you're all having a good week so far..... its nearly the weekend.

So today is day 17 for the Black Cherry Punch and tomorrow she will be going into her final 20L finishing pot.

ย 

118F7DD9 4FD9 44B5 9166 4235C90DB241
78F32199 8A79 406C 9694 FA6DCDE2AD40

As you can see shes come on really well since my last update but I think is now at the point where its time to give her a bigger pair of shoes to wear.

Not done anything special to her, just watering with plain tap water when I feel the soil has dried out.

Temp is sat between 25-28C

RH is between 60%-70%

Thats about it for today, i'll post another update after shes moved house and recovered from any transplant shock.

Happy growing everyone Thumbs Up ย

@redeyejedi I use a thing called super thrive for transplanting. Helps to encourage growth to heal from damage and never have I seen transplant shock using this stuff. Cant wait to see how you do in there. I have the same set up but a mars tent and sp250! Go mars!

@colacody SP250 Massive LoL ย 

I had some rooting powder I used, its pretty cheap and basic stuff but used it last time and it worked well but definitely gonna invest in a few more products as time goes on but shes for now, shes all moved and in her new home now Smile ย

Day 22 Update

So its been 5 days since I transplanted this Black Cherry Punch plant and shes recovered nicely.

C70D85E1 8406 482E BB45 DC6BF535CAB2
4C2FA3D4 FBDD 48B7 BA39 6DB7E068CF0E

As you can see theres been some healthy growth over the last 5 days and shes just upto 5 nodes now so will top her tomorrow.ย 

Shes had 2 watering's since the transplant.

image

You might notice that PPM increased for the 2nd watering. For this one I left the water out over night to de-gas and this increased PPM but im guessing this is normal?

I also reduced down to 800ml on her watering yesterday and as you can see from the photo, theres still plenty of water in the soil for her today.

Temp wise its pretty steady in there 24-28C

RH still rolling at 70% but will drop this down to 65% after shes topped.

Thats about it for today. Any questions, comments or suggestions always welcome.

Happy growing everyone Thumbs Up ย

@redeyejedi beautiful and healthy looking plants you have there! I like to use a Bigfoot microryzza when I transplant to help with root growth and never have seen to have any shock problems from transplant. I love that stuff!! They also have a powder you can use every couple weeks to help boost root growth along the way!

@okiephil Yeah i will buy some decent stuff, ive used some basic rooting powder but its always worked very well and around 48 hours after transplant im always seeing further new growth.

ย 

@jacks_farm yes mate, will start with LST probably this weekend, wanna try and keep the canopy as even as possible and get as many bud sites as I can exposed to the light. I did LST on my last grow but was probably a bit light with what I did so definitely keen to rectify that this time.ย

Day 26 Updateย 

So the its been 3 days since the Black Cherry Punch was topped so thought I would post an update.

Shes responded really well as you'll see from the pictures below and is now ready for LST however, ive ran out of plant ties lol so i'll be going out tomorrow to try and get some from what shops arent in lockdown and if unsuccessful.... Amazon.

7DFE8217 9C3A 4FB9 8903 455DA599EE62
FD27E620 D049 435A 97C4 7AAF4EA0244C

She was watered today but prior to this id given her 3 days without to try and encourage roots to spread out further in her new pot. Still just plain fresh pH'd tap water at this stage.

image

Temp is ranging between 24-26C with lights on and dropping to about 21-24C at lights out

RH sitting between 63%-65%

ย 

Thats about it for today, will post another update once ive done some LST.

As always any comments or suggestions always welcome. Happy growing everyone. Thumbs Up ย

Day 35 Updateย 

So its been over a week since I last updated this diary so thought id better get a couple of pics on.

The LST has gone well with her and shes really filled out the pot now as you can see from the pics below

4D334BE5 3923 4B3A 9ADB BC3815FB73A5
4F52B258 92FE 46D2 8F1C A3AE9388DBB9

Am just continuing to tie down any shoot that gets higher then the canopy and move and tuck leaves to get as much light through as possible.ย 

Today she had her 1st feed only very light at 213 PPM

image

Temp is sitting around 22-27Cย 

RH 60-63%

Am just continuing with LST everyday at the moment and she'll only get pH'd tap water for the remainder of this week now.

Other then that no other issues to report.

As always any comments or suggestions welcome Thumbs Up ย

Day 41 Updateย 

As i'd just watered the BCP and had a spare 10 minutes on my hands, thought id grab a cpl of pics and post an update to how the Black Cherry Punch is coming along.

Its roughly about 3 weeks since she was transplanted now and shes looking very good so far, ive managed to keep the canopy relatively even by LSTing.

D307E249 5B0C 438F 8D5B A683AE656D81
D44CCE28 12F3 4171 9B8F 419C05B7E417

Gonna give her 1 more week under 18/6 as that will allow the LAPK shes sharing the tent with to get a full 4 weeks in veg from transplant then will flip them both to 12/12.

Upped the feed for her a bit today aswell

image

Temp in the tent is between 22-25C at the moment

RH is between 60-62%

Just going to continue tying down any shoots that are creeping up and try and keep her as flat as possible before she's flipped next week.

Thats about it for today, as always any questions or suggestions always welcome. Happy growing everyone Thumbs Up ย
